Insurance for those deemed high risk
We know how hard it can be to get insurance if you've got a health condition or a skeletal issue. If you do find an insurer willing to cover your health problem, how do you know whether you’ve been offered the best terms?
As independent advisers, we are not tied to any providers, which means we have whole of market access and can find the right policy to cover your health issue. Whether you’re looking for Life Insurance, Critical Illness or another form of policy, there are a number of insurers offering cover for a number of health conditions.
At Intelligent Advisers, we care about our customers. We understand that it’s stressful enough living with a health problem, let alone trying to find insurance cover. We have listed a few common health conditions below – however, please call our friendly team on 0330 113 0007 to discuss your own personal situation.
If you suffer with diabetes, did you know that it is possible to find Life Insurance cover? Costs can vary dramatically depending on the provider, so our expert team will compare a number of policies on your behalf, removing any stress or worry. If you’re looking for Critical Illness cover, this can prove to be a little more difficult.
However, if you have type 2 Diabetes, and this is well-controlled, we may be able to find this type of cover for you too (depending on whether you have any additional health issues or any complications). Unfortunately, if you have type 1 Diabetes, it's very unlikely that we can find you a Critical Illness policy (although late-onset type 1 Diabetes can prove to be an exception).

Whether you have suffered a heart attack (known as 'MI'- myocardial infarction) or another type of heart condition, we may be able to find you a suitable Life Insurance policy. Heart conditions are very common, and there are various insurers offering Life Cover.
However, if you’re looking for Critical Illness cover, this can prove difficult. Depending on the type of heart condition you have, we will do our very best to find a provider that offers this type of policy for your situation.

If you've previously suffered from cancer, you may feel that it’s either impossible to get Life Insurance, or that you will be charged very high premiums.

This could include cover for the type of cancer you have already suffered from, so talk to our team about your medical history.
